I have been teaching yoga to persons with Multiple Sclerosis for 10 years and I have had many of the same amazingly dedicated students for these 10 years. They come to class even though they may be in pain, having difficulty walking, suffering fatigue, anxiety and/or depression and, they leave the class feeling great with comments like, “I feel much better now”, or “this is the closest to pain free I have been in many years”. It’s these smiling faces and these powerful words that keep me believing in the power of yoga and all it has to offer to persons with disabilities. This is the reason I partnered with Chuck Burmeister, a fellow yoga teacher, who also has MS, to create a DVD, “Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis”. Through this DVD, we can offer yoga to those who live in other areas and may not have access to MS yoga classes or who may be afraid to try yoga or have difficulty getting out of the house. You can purchase our DVD through my blog site as well as through Amazon. You can connect with us on our Facebook Page, Real Yoga, LLC.
We currently have a marketing team from Heidelberg University conducting a survey for persons with MS and or their care-givers. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey so we can continue to help those with MS.
